Paterson may pick Aqueduct developer soon
Governor David Paterson’s office may choose a developer for Queens’ Aqueduct Racetrack as soon as Monday, sources close to the situation told Crain’s. Paterson’s office is currently completing its internal review of the six bids for the site. The project’s bidders include SL Green Realty, Aqueduct Entertainment Group, Steve Wynn and a partnership of MGM Mirage and developer R. Donahue Peebles. Paterson reportedly favors Wynn’s plan, while Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver has supported a plan from Buffalo-based Delaware North Companies.
